This was just announced via director Edgar Wright on Twitter after a tweet-along watch party through The Academy. Some of the cast members (Aubrey Plaza, Ellen Wong, Brandon Routh, etc.), screenwriter Michael Bacall, and original Scott Pilgrim creator Bryan Lee O'Malley took part.
Anyone else excited for this? This movie didn't do well at the box office 10 years ago, but has developed a cult following... excited to see it making waves these days!

Keep in mind, I'm not talking about ads. They can fuck off.
What I mean is trailers for upcoming movies. Even though I always keep an eye on new trailers coming out online, it's always nice to see them in cinemas as well because then my family can become interested as they don't check up on upcoming movies.
It's even better when I'm at an arthouse cinema where they play trailers for less mainstream movies. That's how I got to see the trailers for The Irishman and Marriage Story and they ended up being some of my favorite movies last year.
Live theatrical performance is just an outdated thing that some snobs pretend to like. Here are the reasons why I think that theater is worse:
You can't really see the facial expressions of actors unless you're rich enough to get a ticket in the thee front rows. Emotional scenes in movies are far better because you can actually see the facial expressions, tears, small finger movement etc.
Actors have to act unnaturally (e.g. speak loudly, overplay to express emotions, make overly wide gestures), which makes the whole thing less believable.
Decorations are shitty. Like, do you want me to believe that those cardboard cuttings are walls of the mansion? And those two plastic trees are forest?
No special effects allowed. I'm not talking about explosions or lasers. You can't even have a proper rain on stage. And even if you pour the real water, I will not be able to see it from my seat in 7th row.
There are a lot of limitations on what kind of scenes you can have, which makes variety o... keep reading on reddit ➡
(I'm new to Reddit and this community, so apologies beforehand if my post is misplaced here.)
For the last two years I used to work as head programmer of the oldest Art House cinema in the Netherlands: Filmtheater de Uitkijk, in Amsterdam. I really loved my job as I have grown up in a cinema loving household. During my time working at the cinema I went to various film festivals and was very active in the diversifying of the field. Creating a diverse, intersectional and inclusive filmprogramme was my main goal during my tenure as Head Programmer. In our cinema we showed Art House films from all over the world, in orginal language and often accompanied by introductions and lectures, in order to better understand the context of the film and the reasoning behind the programming.
Recently I moved to NYC from Amsterdam, and found myself experiencing difficulty to find cinemas with a broad and diverse offer of films, in quantity and quality. (I've been to the Metrograph, Fil... keep reading on reddit ➡
We watched Monty Phyton and the Holy Grail at a small independent theater (Luna theatre in Lowell, MA). We thought nothing of it and it was kinda a silly Valentine’s Day event. What was the last movie you saw in a cinema? Was there something you wanted to see but missed out and haven’t been able to stream it? Thanks
Shaft might not be "True Film-y" enough for some, but there's no denying its position in cinematic history. Unfortunately, its titular character has been absolutely steamrolled in the years since its release.
You can read a more in-depth analysis of what I'm saying here, but the gist is that in the original Shaft, John Shaft lives in Greenwich Village, decks out his apartment with expressionist art, and uses clever thinking to get over on his enemies as much as anything — why, then, is our cultural memory of Shaft filled with stuff like Donald Glover joking about how Shaft slaps women, despite the fact that he literally never does that?
Undoubtedly, a lot of this comes down to conflating Shaft with other blaxploitation protagonists, but I do think there's something else going on here as well. I wonder how well the American cult... keep reading on reddit ➡
Show of hands please! Even if you can’t remember, say so if you’re brave enough😅I’m just curious. I’ve noticed that since I quit twitter I can sit through entire shows and movies without picking up my phone to scroll through my feed (which doesn’t exist anymore) and I’ve never been more happy with myself. Baby steps.
Anyone else experience this after quitting a social network? Anyone else experience this regarding the completion of any other tasks in general as well?Shout below!
Anyone wishing to experience this but just can’t seem to get the program to hold your attention for more than 5-10 minutes at a time no matter how interesting it is? Plenty of advice throughout this subreddit. Good luck!
Edit: If you were watching the program on your phone or computer and you didn’t click or swipe away from the streaming site or app to go surf/scroll somewhere else, then that counts too😆
Antes dessa pandemia, eu tinha costume de ir ao cinema sozinha. Eu gostava de sentar nas cadeiras da última fileira, lá no topo, bem no cantinho. Uma coisa que eu fazia era me masturbar. Às vezes o filme era interessante demais e eu não chegava a gozar de fato, só ficava alisando a buceta por cima das roupas, ou por cima da calcinha (quando eu usava), enfiando a mão por baixo da saia.
Sinto saudades disso, espero que essa crise termine logo. Provavelmente vou deixar a cadeira do cinema pingando de tão molhada.
Alguém mais com esse fetiche?
Comment below your favorite decade of cinema history, you only get one pick and then I’ll gather the 6 most popular decades and put them into a poll for everyone to then vote on for the final...
I recently made a best filmmakers poll sort of thing, it’s still in its early stages where I’m narrowing down the top 6 to then do a poll, you can go and submit picks right now! It’ll be interesting to see some changes.
Current Top 6:
Hey everyone, it's time to start the round of 32! There will be two rounds a day, so look for the other poll once you've voted! Also, please upvote so more people can see the poll and vote.
The songs aren't divided by length anymore - this is the ninth of 16 matchups in this round.
Here are the results of yesterday's first matchup:
Advanced: Pink Floyd - Pigs (Three Different Ones) (700 votes / 53.64%)
Eliminated: Rush - Xanadu (605 votes / 46.36%)
Damn it. Nevermore shall Xanadu return, escape these caves of ice. Even as someone who likes Pink Floyd more than Rush, this one really hurts.
Please don't vote unless you've heard both songs. I can't enforce this rule, but I trust that y'all will follow it.
Here's a link to the Spotify playlist made for the tournament by u/PinkHeno. (Thank you!!!)
I know it's difficult to vote between two songs of drastically different lengths - rem... keep reading on reddit ➡
A weekly thread for film lovers of r/Kerala.
My pick is Interstellar. I just recently watched that movie on my laptop and it shook me to my core. The score was amazing and I loved the docking part! This movie started me on a path of watching every Nolan movie ever made. So far I have watched every movie except 'Following(1998)'. Sadly I can only imagine what the experience must have been like to watch this masterpiece in the theater upon its first release.
